Hana Yori Dango

Ever heard of the Taiwanese series Meteor Garden? It was quite famous a couple of years back. Did you know it was based on a Japanese manga called Hana Yori Dango? Well, it looks like there's now a Japanese version of the drama as well. Currently airing in Japan, this drama stars Matsumoto Jun, Mao Inoue, Oguri Shun etc. [Those are the only names that I could remember hahah]

I've read the manga, but I haven't watched MG. So I can only make the comparison with the manga. So far so good. The story sticks to the manga. The actors & actresses seems to potray the character as depicted in the manga. And it has quite a good theme song as well.. the christmassy Wish sung by Arashi.

What's this story about? Well, to summarise, it's actually the love story between Makino Tsukushi and Domyouji Tsukasa. Tsukasa's the leader of F4, the rulers[or more accurately, the flowers- Flower4] of Eitoku Gakuen. Tsukushi hates her school and went up against Tsukasa when he tried to bully her friend. As a result, Tsukushi's high school life turned to hell as she was 'red-tagged' by F4. Unexpectedly, the bratty and baka Tsukasa began to fall in love in with Tsukushi, while Tsukushi has a secret crush on Hanazawa Rui[the cool member of F4].

This manga is funny because of the ways Tsukasa tried to win Tsukushi's heart. But it also has some endearing and heartwarming moments. Not to forget the fact that it has some moral lessons as well. The heroine is also not some brainless bimbo, but a strong willed and determined girl. I think that's what make it different from other shoujo mangas. The art in this story gets better at the end. You can actually see the difference quite clearly. Compare the drawings in the first volume and the last.'s totally different.

Back to the drama, Oguri Shun as Hanazawa Rui is totally cool hahah.. Inoue played Tsukushi quite well. And Matsujun..haha I can only laugh at his hairstyle..but his acting is not bad. The settings and costumes in this drama is also good. They really dressed the students up in branded goods[Omega watches, Chanel handbags etc] and have them drive expensive cars. Must have got lots of companies to sponsor them heh..Oh and I love the scene where Tsukushi punched Tsukasa..ahaha..

You Are 60% Boyish and 40% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.

another update?

Your Brain's Pattern

You have a dreamy mind, full of fancy and fantasy.
You have the ability to stay forever entertained with your thoughts.
People may say you're hard to read, but that's because you're so internally focused.
But when you do share what you're thinking, people are impressed with your imagination.

Some people are bugging me[in the tagboard] for an here's one after a month of silence haha..

I'm back in the gloomy city of London. I've adjusted to the new home..but still hate the central heating..which doesn't seem to work at all. Anyone who wants to freeze themselves are welcomed ;P...thank goodness we still can get hot water..and the net keeps disappearing on me & my housemates..kalah biskut chipsmore..

Hurm..what else is there to write about? Fasting has started more than a week ago..I'm officially the house alarm clock..When I wasn't around, no one woke up for sahur..hahah..Ermm..tomorrow's the pic-taking day for Raya pics to be sent to newspaper..Baju mane yer nak pakai..hahah..

Ergghh..why can't I use torrent? It makes things so difficult..Clubbox is only good for certain types of files..Plus, it's hard to read Korean when you haven't learnt it at all.. haha..

This is more like a collection of ramblings haha..So Dilla, is this a good enough update?

Oh, a happy Ramadhan to all~
